The other one was getting really stiff, so I thought I would open up another open thread for general conversation related to the NCAA brackets that were announced today.
@Susan_Shan has the best explanation so far for the #4 seed for UK
Gene Smith said that when Kentucky came up for voting, people valued Kentucky differently. Translation: winning streak counted for nothing.
My translation of Smith's remark: "We couldn't figure out what the little marks on the info sheets were, we thought maybe they were Sanskrit. So we rolled the dice and it came up 4."
@KentTaylorWAVE had this:
Calipari shook his head and left room when Florida popped on screen as a 2 seed
Heh. Well, I guess throwing things in a room full of media would be bad form.
Committee had a tough job; this is a weak field. But, no excuse for these decisions. The Big East officiating crew made better calls.
That's going to leave a mark.
